When Rick Cope decided he needed a much larger decoy spread, he talked to his friends about forming a hunting club. The annual dues would help fund more decoys that everyone could use and also provide a ready source of fellow hunters to haul and set up the spreads. That’s how the Yellowstone Hunt Club was formed in 2008. It also benefitted from the fact that several of the club members belonged to a company that would pay a nonprofit for the hours they volunteered. So they turned the hunt club into a nonprofit group. Since its founding, the Yellowstone Hunt Club’s membership has gone on to support other conservation groups and even held a gun raffle to pay for three youngsters to hunt with the club this waterfowl season. Anyone interested in joining can contact the club through its Facebook page where you will also see photos from their successful outings.
